Fredericton's entrepreneurship hub Planet Hatch and the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service (TCS) have announced a lunch-and-learn event for scaling tech companies interested in learning how to scale and expand in the U.S.
In a panel format, expert business advisors from the Canadian Tech Accelerator (CTA) program will share their insights regarding some of the biggest challenges and opportunities of doing business in the States.
The event will take place this Wednesday, November 21, between noon and 1.30pm at the Planet Hatch location on Crowther Lane in Fredericton.
In a release, the organizers said the CTA provides high-potential companies with access to coaching, mentors, specialized workshops and events, and introductions to potential partners, clients and investors through market immersion programs in New York, Boston, and Silicon Valley, among other places.
Interested companies are encouraged to go to the registration page and apply for the chance of gaining a 30-minute one-on-one meeting with visiting CTA mentors Lauren McCullagh and Karla MacDonald.
Ideal candidates for the one-on-one meetings are innovative Canadian tech companies that already have market traction in Canada and have a well-developed technology, product or service. Applications will be assessed according to: management team experience; product-market fit; traction in the marketplace and potential to scale.
Companies selected for a one-on-one meeting will also have the opportunity to speak with a Trade Commissioner about how the network can support their global growth.
Registration information provided on the page will be shared between the TCS, Planet Hatch, and CTA mentors Lauren McCullagh and Karla MacDonald.
